Funky And Friends...
I can't let the day go by without a tip o' the hat to the Funky Winkerbean comic strip. If you follow this art form at all, you know that Lisa died of cancer today. It was handled beautifully and has drawn a small tear from me each morning for several weeks. We all know someone with cancer... or we did... or we will. Too much of that particular curse going around. Tom Batiuk (like attic with a b,) the artist, is top notch, turning a depressing weight into a love story.
I followed this strip when the main characters were in high school... then he jumped ahead to when they were adults. Now I understand the strip will jump ahead again and put their kids in high school... time does pass and I like it when my comics move along with it. I look forward to the new adventures.
More than you probably want to know about the strip can be read here.
